Clean Energy Fuels and Quantum Fuel Systems Look to Gain as Auto-Manufacturers Begin to Develop Natural Gas Vehicles

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/29/12 -- Plummeting natural gas prices and pressure to reduce emissions have made natural gas a viable option as an alternative fuel. Roughly 70 percent of our oil consumption is from gasoline. "This abundance of natural gas is something we weren't expecting as a country, but it's here now, and it's a gift we should take advantage of," says Steven Mueller, chief executive of Southwestern Energy Co. "There's huge savings here and a way to help to environment." Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Alternative Fuels Industry and provides equity research on Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ: CLNE) and Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTWW).

Major auto-manufacturers such as Ford, GM, and Chrysler have begun developing vehicles that run on natural gas as U.S. consumers have finally begun to consider the commodity an alternative to gasoline. Ford currently offers eight powered natural gas vehicles, while Chrysler back in March unveiled a pickup truck that runs on liquefied natural gas. Westport Innovations just recently signed second deal with GM to develop natural gas engine technology. The first deal was announced last June.
